Get this cookbook

If you don't have the Moosewood Cookbook, I insist you rush out now to get a copy. When I first heard about it, gosh more than 10 years ago now, I was really skeptical. At the time, I was still very close to my meat and potatoes upbringing. (Of course now my mother, the aforementioned upbringer, doesn't cook that way anymore either!) Moosewood is a vegetarian cookbook but if you're not paying close attention, you'll never notice. The dishes are easy to make, but most important, hearty and satisfying.

I am thinking about Moosewood this morning because I know I have this delicious dish from Moosewood still in the office fridge. I made it the other day and have just enough left to have at least a snack today. Well, of course, as you know, I didn't actually look at the recipe when I made it. :) I have made it so many times I didn't bother to get the cookbook out. But I followed the Moosewood premise!

Here's what I mixed up:
1 can chickpeas, drained
1/2 small red onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, chopped
A little fresh ginger
Olive oil
Red vinegar

Be careful with the latter two -- you don't want the goodies swimming in the oil and vinegar. I added a little salt to taste, and then because I had some nice ones, I chopped and threw in some black olives. Delicious!
